Formalising and extending the ILC-CLIC collaboration

| 4 February 2010 [...] The ILC-CLIC collaborative work has become an important element in our activities. In addition to the technical interchange and joint work through seven working groups, we held a Global Design Effort Executive Committee meeting at CERN last June and will organise a large joint workshop next autumn. Our collaborative activities have reached a level where it has become important to formalise the arrangement, which has now been achieved through a joint statement. -- Barry Barish Category: Director's Corner | Tagged: ,

Accelerator Advisory Panel meeting in snowy Oxford

| 21 January 2010 The first step in evaluating the SB2009 proposal was an in-depth review held in Oxford, UK, just after the New Year. The Acceleration Advisory Panel (AAP) is a panel of technical and project experts that advises me on technical, R&D and management issues. It will be a couple of more weeks before I receive their detailed report, but in anticipation, I briefly report some highlights based on their comments to me and their presentation at the closeout session. -- Barry Barish Category: Director's Corner | Tagged: , ,

Evolving the ILC baseline
